Talk Title: Multi-angle Imaging of Earth from Space: Past, Present, and Future
Speaker: Dr. Larry Di Girolamo
Remote sensing of Earth by way of orbiting satellites has become one of the leading ways in which we gather information on the geophysical properties of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere. Multi-angle imaging satellite technologies are becoming more popular since they offer superior remote sensing capabilities in retrieving cloud and aerosol properties when compared to traditional single-view instruments. Here, I will provide a brief overview of past, present and future satellite multi-angle imaging instruments, why we continue to need them, and what challenges they bring to GIS.
